Ecorys supports Internal Control and Risk Management at the ECOWAS Bank for Investment and Development

Ecorys has been contracted by the European Commission to implement the second phase of support to Public Financial Management reform in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). 

The project supports the ECOWAS Bank for Investment and Development (EBID) to strengthen systems and controls for improved financial management through the introduction of advanced management information systems and capacity building of bank staff. The ultimate objective of the project, which will run from November 2019 to May 2021, is to help EBID achieve compliance with EU standards for internal financial control (the Pillar Assessment). 

This second phase follows the successful work Ecorys has been doing with the ECOWAS Commission supporting their control system to achieve pillar compliance by the end of 2020. This work continues under the second phase. 

If you would like to know more about Ecorys work with the ECOWAS Commission and ECOWAS Bank, please contact Alan Duggan who manages both projects.
